From a 1957 daytime broadcast, here are two commercials Wisk laundry detergent. According to Wikipedia, Wisk was launched in 1956 as the first liquid laundry detergent. So the product was still pretty new at the time these aired!

A 1952 commercial for "Fab" detergent. Complete with cliched 1950s housewives. May actually be from 1951. Picture quality leaves much to be desired.

A 1968 US commercial for "Bold" brand of laundry detergent.

A retro 1971 commercial for Wisk Detergent. It is one of those "ring around the collar" ads. They did a lot of them.

A complete commercial break from 1963, which aired in daytime. Yes, the Breeze commercial promotes the product coming with a free towel.

A 1967 commercial break, taken from a daytime series, for Breeze detergent (with a towel in the box) and Lux dishwashing liquid. Note: These commercials were probably originally in color/colour, but this copy is in black-and-white.

A 1964 commercial for Fab laundry detergent with "durabrite". Personally, I find this commercial to be a bit banal, but then, what do I know?

A beautifully dated 1955 commercial for FAB laundry detergent. In my biased opinion this is one of the greatest commercials ever. (note: as of 11 August 2014 the file has been improved)

Another commercial for Dash detergent. I took this from a 1963 TV episode, but it may have also aired in 1962.

A 1961 commercial for Cheer laundry detergent...is it just me, or does the "other brand" look whiter?

A 1962 commercial for Dash laundry detergent.
Topics: Classic TV Commercial, Laundry detergent, 1962
A classic commercial for Rinso, a brand of detergent. Note: this is a B&W copy of a commercial that wasn't originally B&W. This is the only version I have.

A classic, if rather dated, commercial for Bold 3 laundry detergent. I found this on a DVD-R I got from a dubious website. I decided to see if anyone had already uploaded it to YouTube, and came across two copies, both with different picture quality to this. I wonder then, where did the maker of the DVD-R get it from?

A 1957 commercial for Oxydol laundry detergent. The woman sure seems to be happy with her box of Oxydol...maybe too happy.

A 1960 commercial for Dash laundry detergent, with picture and sound quality so bad it hurts. But it's still an improvement over the previous upload of this commercial. But not much.

An early 1960s U.S. commercial for Wisk laundry detergent.

A classic mid-1960s commercial for Ajax laundry detergent set in "Steeltown, USA", with a knight and the phrase "stronger than dirt".  I am pretty sure this is from 1965, but please forgive me if I'm mistaken.

A classic U.S. sponsor tag for Dash detergent....for those of you confused by my use of the phrase "sponsor tag", it simply means that ad that played right after the announcer said "this program is brought to you by.....".
